5 College Student

Health & Safety: I feel really safe at school since we have campus security and we have emergency phone booths around campus. One interesting thing about Sac State is that each tree on campus has a number on it so when there's an emergency one can be found by just giving the campus police the number of any tree that one is near by.

Overall Experience: One particular course I enjoyed at my school was history with Professor Kluchin. I never really liked history before this course. I'm really interested in history now and I actually understand it.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: Being apart of the CAMP program in school they really encourage the value of a degree, but mostly about gaining experience in regards to your major to be able to learn through experience.

Greek Life: I didn't get the opportunity to join a sorority but I heard from friends that it really fun and they do a lot of community service.

Athletics: I'm not really aware of athletic clubs or sport on campus but I hear the games are super fun.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: My overall experience of college was amazing. For being a first year student in college I got to learn all the resources that my college provides and learn how the school works. Also being apart of the CAMP programs and EOP program has helped me manage my first year in college. This year really makes me excited for all the years to come.

Athletics: I am not involved in sports and would not be able to answer this question relatively as useful as someone that is involved in the sport community.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I have met all of my friends through the Greek Life. They provide you with parties(if you party), job opportunities, and community service.

Overall Experience: as a transfer into upper level major courses in a non-impacted program, I've had an easy time getting the classes I need. I do wish there were more scheduling flexibility, night classes and online classes.

Overall Experience: The CM program is career oriented and strongly focused on internships, the local construction business community, and preparing students for real life in the career world.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Useful and efficient student alert system

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far I was very impressed with the Open House night for the construction management program. The program and professors are very focused on the fact that the students are there to learn so that they can go on to be successful in a career. Everything is centralized around getting into a great job and having the tools to be successful. Other schools seem to be too focused on the time spent in college, the classes, the education etc etc and forget the fact that what is really important is job prospects after graduating.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Varsity sports are not a huge part of life at Sacramento State University. Many games are sparsely attended and there isn't a whole lot of recognition or support from the greater Sacramento community.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: It is not the worst but not the best either. It has many clubs available, many job opportunities if one makes the effort to look, and many activities on campus for students to enjoy. One thing I do not like about my college choice is I am commuting to school and it cost quite a bit for transportation cost. If I could do it all over, I would have chosen a college further from home, so I can live independently.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The struggles that are caused by the csu system are of set by the collective experience the college provides. The struggle creates bonds that help the students grow and succeed in the classes.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Computer science has a high employment chance, as of being in the state capital means alot of government jobs. In the next five years ago bunch of start ups are going to pop up in the surrounding area, this place is pretty ideal for stem feilds.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Some places are good some are not as good. It's all based on your proximity to the school. Because campus housing expands well beyond the actual campus.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The facilities are top notch. With relatively new equipment and spaces for everything, including an indoor track,the athletics center has it all.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The people I met have helped me make it through as far as I have. Being involved in clubs has helped email see the application of what I'm studying and the potential for job growth available in my feild. The teachers are understanding and not at all disconnected from the struggles of the students. The buildings are wonderful you kept and beautiful as well as functional.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: In the past few years, it seems that crime rates have increased. The most occurring being walking in the evening alone on campus and being attacked or if there is a suspicious package on campus. The school has really re-vamped the notification services so that when something happens, a mass text, email AND automated phone call is sent out to alert everyone. But I still take precautions of not walking alone at night and carry my pepper spray with me at all times.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The trees on campus are amazing. Sacramento State definitely reinforces the saying for Sacramento being the "City of Trees". The trees offer a nice scenery whether you are walking to and from class or sitting underneath them studying.

Most of the professors' that I've taken classes with have been excellent. If they see a student engaged and express interest in the subject, then they tend to really try and help that student and provide them with all the knowledge and tools they will need for that area.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The security on campus is really fantastic. There are plenty of community service officers and police officers who patrol the campus and maintain order.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Professors are really great here! They are all passionate about their field and love to help students learn the curriculum.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The experience of job prospects on this campus depends on your major. There are more social science career opportunities present than for the natural sciences.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: This is not the place i would suggest a student lives in to experience college. Students would be better off living off campus than enduring the repetitive food menu and poor attitudes of the students.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students appreciate Sac State because it's pleasant, but they often wish it had more school spirit. The ones who are satisfied with it usually haven't been to other four-year universities, so they don't have anything major to compare it to from first-hand experience. Those who wish for more excitement usually mention wilder Bay Area campuses. A majority of people that attend Sac State just want a degree so they can get out. They know not to expect the typical college experience that makes for legendary times and awesome memories. Too many of them commute. If Sac State were more of an on-campus school, there would be more student satisfaction socially. If you decide to study here and want campus community, seek clubs or other social organizations as soon as possible. If you're laid-back and don't mind coming to a school where everyone just comes to get a grade and a job, make yourself at home.

Many students would be blown away if they knew how hard their education could be, but a lot of them are fine with Sac State's current academic level. Most assignments are easy, and it's surprising what students worry about. There's a writing test, the Writing Proficiency Exam, that all students must take before advancing to higher-level classes, and it has a fearsome reputation because many of them make a big deal about it. But in reality, it's nothing more than an in-class essay where you offer your opinion on a certain topic—that's all. Although most Sac State students don't think their education is lacking, when they voice concerns, it's obvious that something's missing. If they were used to consistently working harder, that test would be a breeze.
